It's all in how you ride it....we have a Roketa Maui with a 100 BBK...and it has lasted over 4,000 miles so far. If you do full throttle take offs and run and wide open throttle constantly...even the 50 and 80 engines are being abused. I know many customers that have them...and yet to see a crank failure. Sure they do ride WOT at times...but they take it up there gradually.. not just grab full throttle and go. People tend to forget the angine itself was designed as a 72cc...but bored to 50cc to be sold in America...so the 80 BBK should never cause you a problem. I worked on one for a kid that had the 80 kit..and he has 9,400 miles on it...all he needed was a belt when brought it to me.

That old gas had sediment in it and you need to remove the tank, fuel pump and filters and change them.

Mark, your bike should have a main fuse very close to the battery check it, sounds like it's blown

It must have a plug (17 mm) under the right side of the engine and on the same side but on top of the engine there must have the plug to fill up (black plastic with a dipstick).

If you drain the excess out and no gaskets are leaking, there should be no long lasting issues.

The only thing I can think of is a bad connection behind the key switch it could cause a fire so you need the fix it ,just un screw the switch and clean all connection points mind grease them to stop them oxidising best of luck

Sort your carb settings out...it sounds like you have an over-fueling problem causing the plugs to foul.

2008 Keeway... | Answered on May 08, 2014


The float valve in the carb is sticking or the float height setting is incorrect or the float has a hole in it.
Do not use Pri on your fuel tap until this is sorted as it could cause hydraulic lock in your engine, which will wreck it. Fuel will flow through your carb into the engine when it is parked.
This will also ruin your engine oil as the fuel will mix with it. Check the oil level to see if it has increased...

Full is on...res is reserve...Pri is Prime.
Do not leave it on prime !!! This is for re-filling the carbs when they have been emptied.
It is a vacuum operated tap, when switched to full or reserve, fuelicon1.png only flows when the engine turns over...prime flows fuel all of the time.
The tap should be set to full unless fuel is running low.
Leaving it on prime when not running can lead to serious engine damage !!!
